from the label:
Akio Suzuki and Aki Onda have been collaborating extensively in recent years. Though differ in generation and performance practice, these Japanese sound artists—Tango-based Suzuki and NYC-based Onda—share an astonishingly inventive, open-ended, and in situ approach to the infinite and variegated possibilities of sound. In their performances, Suzuki and Onda often utilize self-made instruments (Suzuki’s famous Analapos), stone flute, tape recorders, wood pieces, nails, hammer, and other found objects among others. gi n ga brings a collection of some important documentation from their extensive collaboration in the last decade with recording pieces from a performance space in Berlin, an event during documenta 14 in Athens, and a performance at Flanders Festival in Kortrijk. Each of them is an extensive investigation on sound in relation to the specific site, architecture, acoustics, and energy of the performance space, creating corresponding topographies, perceiving sound as space.
